  • You are adaptable, resourceful and able to develop effective solutions to problems

They’re offering a salary of up to £70K (though have said they’ll go higher for the ideal person) as well as potential share options. They’ve got a great office and you’ll be joining a hungry, innovative team. You’ll also get a MacBook Pro and they’ve got lots of ideas for more perks in the future.
